Most Added: March 7

These are the five most added players over the last week. Stats listed below are from the last 7 days.

  1. Greg Monroe (14.3 points, 9 rebounds, 1.3 steals, 1.7 blocks, 59.4% FG%): As we recently noted, Monroe has been piling up double-doubles of late. Greg is locked into the starting center spot and should see big minutes for the rest of the season. He's a must own in the few leagues where he's still available.
  2. Marcus Thornton (25.7 points, 2.7 three-pointers, 2.3 steals, 50.9% FG%, 81.3% FT%): Thornton has been on absolute fire since joining Sacramento and has made a case for being owned in all formats. He's a great pick up for scoring, points, steals, and free throw percentage.
  3. James Harden (21 points, 1.3 three-pointers, 1.3 steals, 50% FG%, 94.4% FT%): Harden is playing like a slightly toned down version of Thornton, contributing in all the same categories. Harden, though, has long term value as he'll be an integral part of the Thunder's rotation down the stretch. If the two are available in your league, Harden appears to be the stronger pick up for the rest of the season.
  4. Kris Humphries (18 points, 16.3 rebounds, 1.7 blocks, 52.2% FG%): Since taking over starting power forward duties following the Deron Williams trade, Humphries has been a beast. He's had four straight double-doubles, including two 17-rebound nights. Humphries is a must own for anyone in need of a rebounding presence.
  5. Chris Kaman (13 points, 7 rebounds, 1.3 blocks, 51.4% FG%): Kaman appears on this list for the third straight week. Fantasy owners have noticed he's rounding into form after missing most of the season with an ankle injury. We're not sure if he can be a consistent double-figure rebounder with Blake Griffin around, but he remains a strong pick up for those in need of help rebounding and shot blocking.
